SCHOOLS

We love to share God's message of love with the next generation!  When we present a program at a school we want the children to see how great our God is and how beautiful the gifts are that each of us possess.  


When we present a program at a school we usually share a brief message that draws the students into asking themselves: How can I use my gifts and talents for the Lord?   We want each person in the audience to realize how special they are, how much our God loves them, and encourage them to use their gifts to worship, glorify, and to serve Him!  Just imagine.. your students loving one another on the ball field, students being servants in the classroom to one another, someone dedicating their painting as a gift to God's greatness!  We have a unique opportunity to pour into your students lives in a way that may change their future.   Thank you for considering bringing us in to share with your students!

School Program Information

Paradosi presents programs at schools between September and May of each touring season both at home and while on tour.  


Program Length

  • We can present anywhere from one or two songs during an assembly to a full hour program at most schools during the academic year.  Our songs vary in range from four-minutes to seven-minutes so we can cater our set to fit whatever length of program that you need. 

Cost of a Program

  • While we do not require an honorarium for Kindergarten through 12th Grade programs, any gift that you can give will help to offset the expenses of these programs and the ministries general overhead. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do we need to request a program at our school?

The further out that you request from the date of the program the greater the chance that we will be able to add your school to the calendar.  Two to Three months is ideal; however, we can sometimes accommodate a last minute program with as few as two weeks notice.   Unfortunately we cannot accept all requests for school programs but if they fit in our schedule and our budget allows, we would love to share with your students. 


Weekdays during the month of December tend to fill up quickly so please make sure to connect with us early if you would like us to present our Christmas program at your school.  


If we will be giving an honorarium, what is an appropriate amount?

Any amount is welcomed!  We have received honorariums for school programs from $50 to $1,200; the average gift falls between $200 - $400.  Every dollar received is a gift and helps to keep this ministry going.


Are there any other requirements for us to bring you in for a program?

We do have specific staging requirements but can often work around these requirements at schools if there is a space in a gym or cafeteria large enough for us to dance.  We also request that healthy snacks, water, and depending on the situation, a meal be provided for the dancers. If we are on tour, we may ask for assistance with accommodations.  Usually program sponsors will secure housing in the form of homestays with faculty members. 


Do you dance at Public Schools or only Private and Homeschool Co-Op's?

Yes, we do dance at public schools on occasion when the doors are opened to us.  During an average year we have an opportunity to share at public schools maybe once or twice.  Some public schools will allow us to dance but not to share a message while others will let us share whatever we want.  In some schools sharing our faith is forbidden, but in those circumstances we are often allowed to ask students questions and inevitably the students end up sharing their faith with other students. Additionally all of the songs that we use are Christian worship songs so the students and faculty hear the message through the music.
